Short Curriculum Vitae of George Dounias
After graduating from the School of Civil Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 1977, he undertook further education at the Illinois Institute of Technology (USA) where he was awarded a M.Sc. in 1982, and at Imperial College London under a NATO scholarship where he was awarded a Ph.D. in Soil Mechanics and a DIC in 1987.
Dr. Dounias is a world expert in Dam engineering and has over 30 years of work experience in a large spectrum of other geotechnical and related works such as tunnels, landslides, foundations, deep excavations and retaining structures, environmental design, and geological and hydrogeological studies. He has an active interest in research which is reflected in over 60 technical papers published in international and Greek journals and conferences. His main research interests include the behaviour of dams, landslides in soils and rocks, laboratory behaviour of materials and tunnel support. Dr. Dounias is currently a Visiting Professor at Imperial College London, President of the Greek Committee on Large Dams and vice President of the Greek Tunnelling Society. He is also a member of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM), the British Geotechnical Society (BGS), the American Society Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the Technical Chamber of Greece. He was an invited lecturer on Dams in the 6th Panhellenic Conference (2010) and discussion leader in the session on Dams of the XV ECSMGE (2011).
